743 Christian Refugees Have Been the Victims of Assaults in German Asylum Centers -- Open Doors Report

Open Doors makes refugee report.  Within 743 attacks are
reported against Christian refugees in German asylum centers.
The majority have been victims of Muslim "fellow refugees".

(Berlin) The Fund for persecuted Christians Open Doors Germany put together with other aid and human rights organizations report the refugee " Lack of protection of religious minorities in Germany " before. This religiously motivated attacks on 743 Christian refugees are documented and analyzed in German refugee centers.
The report quoted German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière with the words: "We have underestimated the importance of religion." The Minister was moved to these words in retrospect on the events of recent months.
The  consequences of these findings is reflected "especially in the German refugee centers,"  says Open Doors.  Through the concealment of these facts, has led to many "wrong conclusions" about the reasons there are many attacks directed especially against Christians, which has led to the "neglect in refugee centers" which fails in the  protection of non-Muslim religious minorities from Muslims.
Last May, various aid and human rights organizations have come together, "to draw attention to the clustering of attacks against Christians and other religious minorities in German refugee camps and to demand effective protection measures for them."  The aid and human rights organizations include the Action for Persecuted Christians and Needy (AVC), the International Society for Human Rights (IGFM), Kirche in Not , Open Doors and the Central Committee for Oriental Christians in Germany .
At a press conference on May 9 in Berlin, reports of 231 refugees were submitted reporting "of the massive discrimination,  death threats and violent attacks, which refugees in Germany suffer because of their Christian faith."
This first collection was continued by the participating organizations. The result has now been submitted to "significantly extended data base". "The documented cases demonstrate the continuing unacceptable situation of Christian refugees who are discriminated against, beaten and threatened with death in the German refugee centers as a minority, by Muslim refugees and partly Muslim employees (security guards, interpreters, assistants). Even ten refugees of the Yezidi faith participated in the survey. Their information has been evaluated separately in this report."
Among the 231 Christian refugees whose negative experiences were documented, 512 more cases were added in the months from May to September. In 743 cases there were religiously motivated attacks against Christians, in ten cases against Yazidis. All attacks were carried out in asylum facilities in the Federal Republic of Germany.
The distribution of those affected  shows Berlin with 146 assaults at the top of the negative scale, while in Saxony no assault was revealed.
Of those, there were 314 reported death threats, 44 of sexual assault, 416 of bodily injury. In addition, 615 cases of "other persecution". 83 percent of these affected indicated that "several times" there were assaults.
The Christian refugees  are  "used to being treated as second-class citizens" in majority Muslim homelands. Now they see that they too can find in Germany no effective protection and reporting the violence and death threats to the police have no consequences for the perpetrators, since the Muslim perpetrators are in the majority, and often make counter charges."
In homes and refugee centers in many cases it is not the perpetrators but the victims who are perceived and accused of being "troublemakers". "Lately we are seeing it more and more that Christian asylum seekers are concerned with house bans, because they interfere with the supposedly good coexistence in the homes."
A majority of the surveyed Christian and Yezidi refugees, therefore, are hoping for  "separate accommodation".  Several also asked for  "no Muslim security personnel".
The overall impression:  Muslims are more welcome than Christians or members of other religious minorities in the "Refugee Welcome"-- apparatus.

Cardinal Duka Levels Criticism Against "Welcoming Polity" and Islamism and Was Censored by His Own Newspaper

Cardinal Dominink Duka was censored because of his criticisms
of Islamism and Mass Immigration by his own Catholic Newspaper
(Prague) Novinky , the most important Internet portal of the Czech Republic reported yesterday on an article by Cardinal Dominik Duka, Archbishop of Prague and Primate of Bohemia, he had written after the assassination of the French priest, Abbé Jacques Hamel. Abbé Hamel had his throat cut on July 26, while celebrating Holy Mass in the church Saint Etienne du Rouvray in Rouen. The priest was then beheaded. The two murderers were shot dead by police. The  Islamic State(IS) took credit for the act. Cardinal Duka sent his response to the renowned Catholic weekly Katolický Týdeník . This, however, refused to publish the article. The cardinal then published it on his Facebook page.
The Catholic cardinal had expressed himself critically in the past about Pope Francis' "welcoming culture". In his article, he warned of a "disproportionate and ruthless welcome policy". An expression which the Cardinal apparently was missed by the censorship of his own subordinates.
The caution and wisdom expressed by the Primate of Bohemia against Islamic immigrants sparked polemical attacks. The advocates of "welcoming culture" are well organized and deeply rooted, especially in the media, even in the Catholic media, as the Cardinal's  bitter experience demonstrated.
Cardinal Duka was bitterly attacked by  Msgr. Tomas Halik, one of the most famous Czech priests. The sociologist and philosopher of religion, who was ordained a priest in the 70s underground, became the General Secretary of the Czech Bishops' Conference and advisor to President Vaclav Havel in the 90s. Halik is Professor of Sociology at Charles University and rector of the University Church. He attacked his bishop: "The real allies of the Islamic State against the Western world are those who do not know the difference between Islam and jihadist terrorists."

Murder of Rouen: "All who have downplayed such acts, should now think"

Czech Catholic weekly Katolický Týdeník

Full disagrees Cardinal Duka. For him, the killing of Abbé Hamel was a "lesson" for all be those who previously downplayed similar incidents and downplayed the perpetrators as mentally ill and frustrated.  Furthermore, to remain silent "would be suicide for our society," said the Archbishop of Prague. He also called for more to pray for the victims of terrorism and to seek fewer excuses and apologies for terrorists.
The Cardinal ends with a reminder and an invitation: In Islam, says the primate,  there are hidden  violent tendencies, which is why those Muslims who do not share these tendencies, should react against if they wish have any share in credibility.
It is piquant to note that the weekly Katolický Týdeník, which imposed censorship on the cardinal for his critical attitude towards  mass immigration and the Islamization of Europe, belongs to the Czech Bishops' Conference.
In the time of the Czechoslovak Soviet Republic there had indeed been a Catholic journal, but one which had been controlled by the communist regime. It had the task to drive a wedge between Catholics, which is why it enjoyed little prestige among  these. After the collapse of the communist dictatorship, the new Catholic weekly was founded by a private publisher.
As Katolický Týdeník got into financial difficulties in the 90s, the paper was adopted, rescued and supported by the Czech Bishops' Conference. The journal is in fact the Church newspaper for the entire Czech Republic. Chief Editor Antonin Randa censored not only his own bishop but also his own publisher.  Cardinal Duka is namely, also, President of the Czech Bishops' Conference.

At Least 84 Dead From Islamic Terror Attack in Nice -- The Ineptitude of Jacobin Policy

Tractor Trailer as Tool of Murder in Nizza: 84 Dead and Over
100 Wounded by Islamic Attack
(Paris) There are at least 84 dead and over 100 injured last night at a terrible bombing in Nice. A truck raced at high speed into the crowd on the famous Promenade des Anglais, which had just admired fireworks there. The fireworks took place for the French national holiday, the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille. 

Tunisian Muslim with French Passport

The attack took place around 2300 hrs in the evening when the beach promenade was crowded with  locals and tourists. The fireworks went straight to its end.
According to the first reports, the assassin was killed in a firefight by police. He is supposed to  be a 31-year old Muslim of Tunisian descent, but with French nationality. The talk is of at least two accomplices. It is not yet clear whether they were on board of the truck, where weapons and hand grenades were found.
French President Francois Hollande, who in recent days hit the headlines because because his barber cost the state coffers more than 10,000 Euros every month, conceded that it is a "terrorist attack".  As a first step he extended the state of emergency in France by another three months.

Extended state of emergency - Restriction of civil rights

The state of emergency was imposed after the Islamist terrorist attack of 13 November 2015 on the Bataclan concert hall in Paris, which killed 89 people and injured hundreds. The measure is controversial in France, as it restricts the rights, including freedom of assembly of all citizens, while the terrorists can still strike.

Beach promenade of Nice: a place of horror and death

The restriction of civil rights is justified by the "threat to the state and its institutions".
Each prefect, as well as officials,  can impose curfews, block squares and lock meeting places of any kind and prohibit any gatherings. The police can perform house searches as instructed by the Minister of the Interior, or prefect, for which a court order is normally required.
Any person who makes himself "suspect" may be arrested or placed under house arrest. Also in this case judge no longer decide, but the Home Secretary and his officials.
Also,  the Home Secretary and his prefects can dissolve. without examination procedures and without jurisdiction, clubs and organizations, which are seen by them as a "threat".
Just yesterday Hollande had announced the lifting of the state of emergency on July 26 after eight months. Not 12 hours later he extended it again.

Jacobin Contradiction: "Cosmopolitanism" outward - State of Emergency Within 

The Islamic terrorist has forced France to an emergency, without undertaking sustained action to improve the situation. Recently, France imposed the state of emergency took place in the 50s and 60s during the Algerian war, but in the Fourth and Fifth Republic, never in peacetime.
A "war," say French politicians, however, is also the fight against Islamic terrorism. The enemy is visible and invisible at the same time.
In France today there are more than six million Muslims who were generously allowed into the country out of a "cosmopolitan" politics. Some Muslims already sit  in the highest government positions and do harm to France there in  radical left-liberal positions in other ways.
"The whole of France is threatened by Islamic terrorism"
said President Hollande with the addition that there are also "several children" among the dead at Nice.

Noteworthy "Coincidences"

French policy has proven itself incapable. For several decades the Grand Nation dawns only according to itself. The government has allowed on the one hand, the Islamization of France by mass immigration into the country from the Islamic world, allowing thus the formation of parallel cultures and the decline of entire neighborhoods that have become social hotspots, and claimed the Islamic terrorism directly and due to the Islamic parallel milieu is hardly controllable.  At the same time a dubious policy of France  engages in interference not only in the Middle East, but also in other Islamic countries and thus  ignites the fuse ever anew- even at home.

The storming of the Bastille in 1789

It may be coincidence, and not intended by the assassin, and yet there it is: The attack on the concert hall Batanclan in November 2015 occurred when the American rock band Eagles of Death Metal had just played   the song "Kiss the Devil."  The chorus of the song, the words repeated in a   penetrating way: "Who will love the devil? Who will sing his song? I will love the devil and his song! Who will kiss the tongue of the devil? I'll kiss the devil on his tongue!" On November 29, 2015 ​​Msgr. François Schneider , pastor of Wisembach,  in the Lorraine Vosges, made people aware of the Satanic connection, which earned him an immediate  reprimand from the Bishop, and according to media reports, the prefect was ordered  at the direction of the interior minister and had threatened criminal sanctions against the pastor. Certain truths seem to be hard to bear.
The assassination in Nice was held on the national holiday, on which France commemorates the opening of the  bloody French Revolution, thus the prelude to the overthrow of the social order, the radical struggle against the Church and Christianity and the beginning of the tyrrany of the Jacobins, who since then have done great harm to the world and the people  and even govern yet again in France.

"We Will Drown the Streets of Rome with Your Blood" -- Islamic State Threatens the Conquest of Rome

Islamic State Threatens to Conquer Rome
(Rome) The Islamic State (IS) has released another document, in which it proclaims the conquest of Rome and the Vatican. It is the second title in four days.
A corresponding PDF document was published on social networking sites, so Askanews . It can be seen on the front page with a picture of the Colosseum  (see picture). It says: "They want ar Raqqa, and we want to Rome". The threat appears to be directly related to the double attack against the IS-capital ar-Raqqah in Syria. Al-Ragga is the objective that the US-led coalition and the Russian-Syrian alliance are advancing toward.
The document says: "They want ar-Raqqa, because it is governed by the law of Allah, and we want to Rome, so that it is governed by the law of Allah."
The Vatican is a "cave", they describe as the "den of thieves." "It is Rome that we want, the cave city of the Vatican, the capital of the Nazarenes, from where an impure man, known as Pope, sends an impure man known as the Pope, who always crusades against the Muslims."
Last Saturday the jihadists released a video that announced that the streets of Rome "are impregnated with your blood".

"We will rape their women"

The second document, published yesterday, was spread on the Twitter account of Al-Wafa Foundation of the Islamic State (IS). As an author himself has a woman who describes herself as Um al-Samh al-Qureishyah which in Arabic means "Mother of Tolerance of al-Quraysh".  Quarysh  is  the Arab tribe that lived in the time of Muhammad in Mecca, to which Mohammed belonged.
The text says: "We will humiliate the unbelievers of Rome, we will rape their wives [...]. Only he will save himself, who embraces Islam or submits to Islam. There is no other faith than Islam. They will soon realize. "The diction at least places the authorship of a woman in question.
The alleged author explains that an alliance of "over 60 countries"  has started a war for the conquest of the capital "of the Caliphate". It is reminiscent of the ruins that have been left behind by the jihadists of the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobane, before the Islamic State withdrew (IS) from there. Kobane was freed by Kurdish militias after a long siege in January 2015. "How did our jihadists leave the city Kobane? As a heap of ruins. Not a wall remained standing, which reminds us that here once stood buildings."
The document ends with the statement that "there can be only Muslims and those subjugated to Islam on earth of our Lord Allah".

Countless Sexual Asaults During Festival in Darmstadt

DARMSTADT. In Darmstadt, many women have been sexually harassed and assaulted by asylum seekers during a city festival. So far, 18 women have reported to the police, the police headquarters southern Hesse said on Monday. The women were mostly at a young age. During the festival, three victims of sex assaults  had complained to the police and complained of harassment and assaults by "men from the South Asian region."

"The perpetrators should proceed in small groups, have surrounded and touched immoral women". The police could then arrested three alleged suspects Pakistani asylum seekers. However, the investigation lasted still on. The police are looking for victims and witnesses to report to the officials.

Irmer: Who does these things, has forfeited his right to guest status"

The Hessian CDU member of parliament Hans-Jürgen Irmer reacted in horror to the incidents."Here the right of asylum is outrageously abused. This is totally unacceptable," said Irmer  to Junge Freiheit"Let me say quite clearly who does these things, has forfeited his right to guest status. There's only one clear answer to this: after a final judgment, back on the next plane to Pakistan," demanded the CDU politician.

Unfortunately, the incident was not a "singular event", which is why the state should now show a "sharp edge". However, it is also important to make it clear that the majority of asylum seekers do not tend in Germany to such acts.

Only the beginning of May during the Carnival of Cultures in Berlin there have been numerous sex attacks on young women. On New Year's night, there had been numerous assaults for hours on women in Cologne and other cities by asylum seekers and illegal immigrants. The incidents made ​​for a discussion of the internal security and the refugee crisis. (krk)

Pope Francis to Muslims: "We Are Brothers"

(Rome) Pope Francis received representatives of the Royal Institute for Interfaith Studies, the Royal Institute for Interfaith Studies from Jordan, this morning. He described the Muslims as "brothers".

The Catholic Church leader called for "building"  the Christian-Islamic dialogue with patience: "The work that they do, is a work of building."

The Royal Institute for Interfaith Studies, was the initiator of the letter of 138 Muslim representatives in 2007. It was written in response to the famous Regensburg speech of Benedict XVI.

Pope Francis: "In a meeting like this dialogue is the operative word. And dialogue means to come out - with the word and with yourself.  To say his word and hear the word of the other. Two words come together there, two thoughts. This is the first stage of the path. "

However, it wouldn't be sufficient to remain in the dialogue. Even "the hearts meet." Going from the dialogue to a "dialogue of friendship", and this leads "to a handshake." "Word, heart, hands, it is easy! Even a child understands it," the Pope said.

 Francis told the representatives of Islam: "We all have a common father - we are brothers!"

The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, which is headed by Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, had planned the event.

The attitude of Pope Francis to Islam: Part of the "people of God"?

Last January, it was announced by the Vatican that Pope Francis will visit the Great Mosque of Rome after the visit to the Roman synagogue. As Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi announced the visit would take place on on April 10. Since then, nothing has been  discussed  for mosque visit.

Already in November 2015 it had been circulated by Francis is allegedlt had the intention to write an encyclical about Islam.

This past Holy Thursday, the Catholic Church leader visited a refugee center in Rome. In his address to the mostly Muslim refugees, the Pope said that the Muslims would belong to the "people of God". An equivalence of Islam was highlighted in January by the first "video of the Pope", where Islam, Judaism and Buddhism were put visually on the same level with Christianity in a message from the Pope.

Do Muslims Belong to the "People of God" for Pope Francis?

Reception Station of Castelnuovo di Porto
(Rome) Pope Francis will celebrate  the Holy Thursday liturgy today in a refugee center "with young refugees". The majority of the inmates are Muslims. The Pope will wash the feet of some of them. The Pope's rumored "syncretistic tendency" (Secretum meum mihi) is extended to a new chapter.

Pope is now washing the Feet of Muslims in 2016

In January Francis did change the rite of foot washing and allowed the admission of women. He washed women's feet as archbishop of Buenos Aires for years.  As the Roman newspaper Il Messaggero reported, it's Muslims  this year who are also to be among the twelve elect, who will have their feet washed by the Argentine Pope.

Friday prayers of Muslims before the Milan Cathedral

In the Decree In Missa in Cena Domini the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments on 6 January, 2016 with the Pope Francis, officially allowed women to the foot washing, which is  referenced on the headings of the Roman Missal. It says: "The acolyte accompanies  those who have been selected from the people of God to ..."
The change in the rite is justified by the decree, "so that the full significance of this rite is made accessible to the celebrants". What the "full meaning of this rite" is, is not explained.
The extension to introduce women is that "the shepherds can select a small group of faithful who represent the diversity and unity of each part of God's people."
Since already on Holy Thursday in 2013 the Pope also washed the feet of members of other religions, specifically, those of Islam, since there is a question in the air: Does Pope Francis also include Muslims among the "people of God", of which we speak in the decree?

"Obviously," for Francis Muslims also belong to the "people of God"

"Apparently yes, although it's not explicitly stated, as today's washing of the feet of women and Muslims is suggesting" said Secretum meum mihi .

Revolt in the reception center Castelnuovo di Porto in 2014

On Tuesday, Curial Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization, told  Osservatore Romano the previously secret location where Pope Francis is to celebrate, outside of his Diocese, the Holy Thursday liturgy. The place of celebration is the refugee center of Castelnuovo di Porto, just outside Rome. The refugee center is operated by  the Christian cooperative Auxilium.
It  was in the past that in 2014 and 2015 that this reception center was inflamed to revolts, in which the migrants violently demanded their recognition as refugees.

The Mass, according to Il Messaggero,  "would include participation by the employees of Auxilium, the pastor and the refugees (mostly Muslims)."
"According to the reports of the Osservatore Romano and the Messaggero , it is clear that the Pope actually counts the Muslims as the 'people of God,'" said Secretum meum mihi .
This redefinition of "People of God" is in open contradiction of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (paragraphs 781-786 ).
"Is it time to rewrite the Catechism?" Asks Secretum meum mihi .

Pope Says Arab Invasion is Real

Edit: Here's the excerpt from Rorate:

"The only continent that can bring about a certain unity to the world is Europe," the Pope adds. "China has perhaps a more ancient, deeper, culture. But only Europe has a vocation towards universality and service." ... "If Europe wants to rejuvenate, it is necessary for it to find anew its cultural roots. Of all Western countries, the European roots are the strongest and deepest. By the way of colonization, these roots even reached the New World. But, by forgetting its history, Europe weakens itself. It is then that it risks becoming an empty place."

[La Vie:] Europe, an empty place? The expression is strong. ... Because in the history of civilizations, emptiness always calls fullness to itself. Incidentally, the Pope becomes clinical [in his diagnosis]:

"We can speak today of an Arab invasion. It is a social fact." ... "How many invasions Europe has known throughout its history! It has always known how to overcome itself, moving forward to find itself as if made greater by the exchange between cultures."

Archbishop Lori Doesn't Give a Damn for His Flock: Cares More About "Human Dignity"

Edit: it's not like he really cares about the Catholics living in the countries being targeted by Islamists, despite his claims to the contrary, which include Rome. Did you see the story about the Muslims who attacked soldiers at St. Mary Major screaming "Allah Akbar"? All of this fits nicely with a story previously put here on the increasingly menacing presence of Muslims in St. Peter's and Rome itself, where Muslims proselytize. Well, if the Pope won't do it, who will?
We wonder if there were any clerics of his stature in the Church who advocated this kind of accommodation when the Crusades were being preached. It's a good thing we had St. Lawrence of Brindisi instead of him.

(Vatican Radio) The Chairman of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ ad hoc Committee on Religious LibertyArchbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, has added his voice to a growing chorus of Catholic Church leaders appalled by the suggestion – which came from a candidate for the nomination of the Republican Party in the United States in the 2016 presidential election – of using a religious test to exclude people seeking to immigrate to the United States.
In an exclusive interview with Vatican Radio, Archbishop Lori reiteratedsentiments first expressed while he was attending a conference at thePontifical Urbaniana University in Rome earlier in December - a conference specifically focused on the persecution of Christian religious minorities. “Certainly we have to guard our borders," Archbishop Lori told Vatican Radio, "certainly the government has to see to the security and the safety of its citizens – no one doubts that – but it raises the greatest of alarms when we do so on the basis of a whole religion.”
“To say, ‘You can’t come in because you are a Muslim,’ – that certainly is a denial of human dignity, it’s a denial of religious freedom,” Archbishop Lori continued, adding, “and it is, I think, very unfair in its characterization of Islam.”

Security Seasures to Prevent Attacks by Jihadist Militias

The prefect relies on anti-terror laws. In concrete terms, they should prevent assassinations by Islamic State be prevented (IS) and other jihadi militias. The threat of such attacks is classified as "realistic" by the Italian Ministry of the Interior.
Prefect Franco Gabrielli has adopted for the period starting on Sunday, December 6th to Wednesday, December 9 a ban on any transportation of weapons, ammunition, explosives and toxic gases on the entire territory of the Rome Prefecture. Also prohibited is the setting off of fireworks of any kind.
For the entirety of the 8th of December when  the Catholic Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, any transport of fuels, LPG, methane and other flammable substances is prohibited. Citizens were advised to not to use during those days, cars, gun cases, envelopes or packages, which are commonly used by the army or the police, or could serve for the transport of weapons, to rule out any likelihood of confusion or suspicion.

Prefect Gabrielli is one of the most experienced counterterrorism specialists in Italy. Since 1987, he has worked in senior positions of state security (DIGOS).From 2000, he headed the DIGOS of Rome. He was  involved at the breaking up of the newest generation of left-wing extremist terrorist organizations the Red Brigades (BR). In 2004 he took over the construction of the newly established Counter-Terrorism Committee (CASA) and in 2005 was head of the Centre to Combat Terrorism at the Interior Ministry. During that time Islamic perpetrators of the London subway bombings were arrested in Italy. In 2006 Gabrielli became head of the Italian domestic intelligence SISDE. Last April he was appointed overlooking the Holy Year of Mercy as Prefect of Rome. According to media reports, he shows  prefect optimism, but was worried actually about existing vulnerabilities.
For this there is also no reason: Tomorrow, Pope Francis will be present at  the opening of the Holy Door of St. Peter's Basilica, the Jubilee of Mercy. Only last Saturday the journalist Mary Tagliazucchi reported the daily newspaperIl Giornale about how she could easily reach St. Peter's with a pistol in her pocket in the late morning."  Smiling, Handbag and Gun: So I Came to the Vatican", is the title of the article. "A few days before the beginning of the year of jubilee I showed up with a pistol on St. Peter's Square without any problems.  A (false) disability card sufficed ... This was "recognizable as a fake." The journalist smuggled a pistol, brand Tokarev TT, Model 57 Jugo, 7.62 mm into the Vatican. "This weapon is especially common in Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East. It was also used earlier in the year during the attack on the Jewish supermarket in Paris," as a weapons expert confirmed for the journalist.
